Bamboo Groove : It's grass and more...

Whether you’ve dozed off on a bamboo mat or savored its exotic flavors, bamboo subtly weaves its way into our lives. From construction to cuisine, it stands tall as a truly versatile plant - a material we can’t afford to overlook.
The BIG news of the month is that Courtyard Koota has a weekend full of Bamboo events! We are very excited to partner with various Bamboo experts to bring out the best for you.

Our curator for this theme is Dr Syam Vishwanath- who is about all things Bamboo. An expert with over 20 years in bamboo research, he is a presence in almost everything to do with Bamboo research and development in India.

We have also been supported in the programming by Benson Isaac- who is passionate about crafts and cultural traditions.  Presenting Food and Stories as an art form is his forte and he brings this to the program.

Our resource persons for the weekend are experts in the field - CS Sushanth, Rajiv Wind, Uravu, the team working on Kannadipaaya, Mei Mei Restaurant, Uravu and NID.


This exciting theme would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors Samagata Foundation- who have been with us in idea and spirit.

A big thanks to all.

Art Installation by Rajeev Wind.

There’s something zen about everything Rajeev Wind, 44, creates out of bamboo. The design is minimalistic and measured, the material never wasted, and the end product always useful. “We don’t want to create unwanted things or waste what nature has given us,” says Wind, who’s recognised in India as one of bamboo’s master craftsmen.
